“Customer feedback was clear that weight, size and ease of use were critical factors, as were true single-handed use, ability to utilize existing computing/smart assets, mobile certification and overall solution economics.” – Don Sutton, Public Sector Account Manager, Crossmatch

Crossmatch has launched a new fingerprint reader that can fit in a shirt pocket. The aptly named NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader also boasts of FAP 30 PIV certification, attesting to a high level of technological sophistication and broad applicability.

The device’s design takes advantage of capacitive thin-film transistor technology, which facilitates its compact design. And it’s designed to interface with standard consumer electronics devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops, ensuring wide usability across a range of applications, from law enforcement to financial services onboarding to government ID.

In a statement announcing the device’s market availability, Crossmatch public sector account manager Don Sutton explained that the NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader is largely a response to customer demand. “Customer feedback was clear that weight, size and ease of use were critical factors, as were true single-handed use, ability to utilize existing computing/smart assets, mobile certification and overall solution economics,” he said.

The device is now available with Crossmatch’s U.are.U software development kit for Android, and the company says that it plans to release an SDK for Windows later this month, and one for Linux in September.
